I used 18 Gauge. well its all finished I have a few tinny things to do but its done. I installed the Vehicle Dynamic Processor its Made by Pioneer its so cool it connects to my ECM and tells RPM Speed and it also has GPS so it tells me LON./LAT. as well as angle of attack and G's. High tech Jeep lol..

Looks cool, though not sure what good an AOA computer or G-meter will do in a Jeep.

Well I used it today on the Trails and it told me what the angle of the Hills I was going up and down it was cool Oh and it also calculates Torque and Horsepower and displays it as well..

I think we are using the terms differently. I assumed you were refering to angle of attack as used in aviation to describe the angle between the chord line of an airfoil and the vector the object is moving on. Didn't see what good that would do you in a Jeep.

I think your device is more of an inclinometer to show what angle you're at as you climb a hill. Seems like a cool device regardless.

Very clever design - good use of the 'air space' on the stock dash.

I happen to like Hammertone paint, but perhaps not on a dash because it can glare and will show fingerprints and so on.

Suggest black wrinkle paint instead. A benefit is that it will hide any imperfections in the metal.

Apply the wrinkle spray according to the directions on the can but I find that using a heat gun to help the second coat wrinkle sets it up faster, gives a better wrinkle, and permit you to control the size and density of the wrinkles. If you don't have a heat gun, use a hair dryer or even a spot lamp.

Lol yes I work in the Aviation industry lol and ex navy aircraft mechanic so I sometimes use the words. I'll take a pic next time I'm on a hill to show it..I thought about the wrinkled look but I wanted something easier to clean when dirt gets on it.

The LED lights below the 4x4 light for your fan is genius! I really like that idea. Just a thought... the blank space above your stereo would be a good place for switches IMO.

Well Thanks I wanted to reused the stock 4X4 indicator and needed a place to put my Fan LEDs so I was like why not use that empty space..I also used a LED to light the 4X4 indicator as well as lighting the one on the floor that is in my 4X4 shifter.. lol

I think 20 gauge will work just fine I only used 18 because I had a sheet of it laying around lol..

No I swapped a 4.3L Vortec in my jeep and used a Sm465 tranny and NP241 transfer case out of a full size truck and I grabbed the transfer case shifter out of the truck as well so thats a Chevy truck bezel and shifter..
